    Time to button up the fuselage. First a quick test fit of the cockpit assy into the RH fuselage. Fit is excellent no issues, the LH side is then attached and cemented in place. Once set, time to install the 1/4 window inserts into the upper rear section of the fuselage. Normally on other kits this could be a potential problem, no in this case the fit is good. Being Tamiya doesn’t guarantee perfection, it is me that can mess it up. Tamiya just produces an excellent fitting kit, with clear instructions of assembly, it is still up to me me as the builder to have to assemble it correctly. So far it is coming along quite well and a joy to work on. Next up the center wing section…

    Thanks Louis, amazing how seatbelts become a focal point within the cockpit. The instrument panel as well. An important detail that really enhances the overall cockpit.
